The 5th Annual soccer match between the Jamaica College Old Boys Association of Florida and the St. George’s College Old Boys Association of Florida for the Dennis Ziadie Trophy, will take place on Saturday April 18th, 2009 at the Central Broward Regional Park, in Lauderhill, Florida. Last year’s match drew over 800 spectators and supporters of both schools. The festivities will begin at 1.00 pm.
The annual match is in memory of Dennis Ziadie, who coached both schools to Manning Cup victories. This year will mark the 23rd year of the death of Dennis Ziadie in a car crash in Mexico at the 1986 World Cup.
“The Ziadie Cup has grown faster than we ever imagined when we started the event. We are expecting close to over 1000 this year.” stated Ray Stephenson the president of the Jamaica College Old Boys Association of Florida.
“We believe this is the most fitting way to honor Dennis Ziadie’s legacy and what he has done.”
